Natural Resources, M.S.
Students in the M.S. Natural Resources program work with our internationally recognized faculty across eight programs and a wide range of emphasis areas to address complex natural resource issues. This degree is designed to help future natural resource professionals acquire strong research, decision-making and problem-solving skills. You should have a strong desire to work both independently and with a team to develop creative solutions for the conservation and responsible management of our natural resources.
Our M.S. Natural Resource graduates get jobs soon after graduating or continue on for doctoral degrees. Many choose careers in the private sector with consulting firms, the aquaculture industry, power companies, or with corporations such as Boise Cascade, the Potlatch Corporation or Weyerhaeuser. Others work for state or federal natural resource agencies, tribal governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), volunteer groups and professional associations and societies.
